"I will tighten my bow before playing, and loosen my bow before putting it away" is just one the commitments you can find on a YONA Instrument Care Agreement contract signed on Wednesday, September 28th. Thirteen contracts were eagerly signed during our graduation ceremony, in the presence of fellow YONA students, as well as staff, parents, and enthusiastic supporters. Songs about instrument care were sung, beautifully accompanied by our YONA students.
Photos from the graduation ceremony truly depict the excitement, joy, and anticipation felt by all, as the new students received their instrument. We're excited to witness the progress, and celebrate the accomplishments each of these students will achieve throughout the 2016-2017 year!
